More Athletes Sent Abroad Can Win U.S. More Friends The runners. Hie Icapcrg H n <l the heavers of the world are foregathered at Helsinki, Finland, to conical for honors in' the lf>th Olympic Games, and that's a good lliinir. It's a goorl thing these days wlicn people, for whatever reason, can yet together from all corners of the world in an atmosphere approaching friendliness. At Helsinki the common cause, is sport. And sport, fortunately for American prestige at the Olympics, is a thing we are pretty good at. Of course, in this country, (rack and field events, which are the heart, of the Olympic program, have never enjoyed the popularity of the "game" spurts such as haselnill, football and the like. Nevertheless our track stars have always ranked with the best in the world even hack before 1(112 when that noblest Redman of t h e m all, Jim Thorpe, ran off with enough medals at the Olympics in Sweden to start a jewelry store. That the Olympics competition has a soothing effect on the jangled nerves of the world cannot be denied. Where, bnl at the Olympics, would you find a Russian embracing an American in a joyful hug? When the American, Bob Richards, set a new Olympic pole-vault record the other day (M feel, 11.11 inches), who should enfold him in a congratulatory bear hug but the Russian vauller, Viktor KnJLV.ev? Another nice thing about the Olympics is Hunt no one nation "wins." TRIP, some nations will amass more points than others, bul as far as official computations go. points are awarded only to individuals, whatever country they come from. That kind of a system makes further for easing tension and promoting amiability. So the Olympics are a fine Iliing as far as they go. but do they go fat- enough? If American athletes can m.nke friends for us at the Olympic?, why can't more athlete? make more friends in competition other than Olympic? The, Cleveland Indians and the Brooklyn Dodgers have annnuin-ed their intention of making a hanistonning trip around the world this fall. Let's have more of this athletic diplomacy. A year 330, a champion soccer team from one of our universities went to Iran at a time of crisis in that crisis- ridden nation. We went over big in Iran. Let's do more of tiiat sort of thing. How about some exhibition football games abroad between the top college or professional team and a picked American servicemen's team of, say, MONDAY, AUGUST 4, 1958 France or Germany? Our top professional golfers should compete abroad much more than they do. They're the best in the business and people in other countries would love to get a look at them. That grin of Snead's could make tin more friends than- Ihree trade agreements and a mutual assistance pact. International diplomacy in this day and ,-tge shouldn't be confined lo the striped pants and cookie-pusher boys. We've got some of the best athletes the world has ever known, and their actions can speak louder than a lot of words. Let's use them. Let's Not Be Half-Tipsy On the occasion of his retirement a few years ajfo a waiter nl onn of the country's hijf hotels recalled that the Ijitffrest tip he ever jjot was a $100(1 bill. The only reiison we tiring the point up here is that the kind donor turned out to he insane. Korlumitfily, everyone who allows himself to i>e litillieft, cajoled, or mocked into ln'coming a parly to the tipping racket isn't insune. We're usually just spineless to the point of what .sometimes must appear to lie insanity. Hit I if we've not to he spineless let's at least be rr>ii,sistenl. about it. We lip the waitress, the Ijellhoy, the cabbie, the hntcheck girl, the barber. Why not the mailman, the streetcar conductor, the guy who sells us a shirt, the policeman, the fireman and Ihe men who sweep up the streets? Let's not be half-tipsy. Lei's ilii the thing up right. Everybody tip everybody. Views of Others It's All Your Money The trouble u-ith mnst discussioli? of tnxes anci Ihe national dobl. Is that (hey tnke place in a [t- nnncial strnlospherp. Almost no one think loBk'ally In terms o! tens ol billions and hundreds of bilious. But when Ihe mean of taxes is related to the average mnn and the nvnraBe family, the ominous picture clears, ''The Bulletin of Ihe Southern BtntP.i Intlnslrinl Council recenlly did that when it salrt. "The public dent l s $2r.O billion and this Inys a burden of 46.800 on every family in America, The interest alone of this debt aggregales more thr.n $6 lilllion annually--or $1HO [or every family.

Peter Frl«on The second WASHINGTON —(NBA I— Behind the ouster of Egypt's fat King Farouk were a couple of comic •ipern plots worthy of the best traditions in «n old-time Latin- American banana republic revolution. The first had to do with whether or not one of the king's favorites. Gen. Hairiar Pasha, could be continued in. office as president of the Cairo Officers' Club, had to do with charges of Kraft In the procurement of defective arms and ammunition tor Egypt's disastrous war against Israel at the end of 1918. An investigation into this graft was whitewashed, more or less with Ihe king's blessing If not on his direct orders. Much of the graft was believed to have gone to high officers In 'the royal palace. Some of It may have gone directly to the king himself. That was what burned the young line officers who fought the war against Israel with barl guns and shells. After this Arab-Israeli war was over in the spring of '49. the Egyptian troops marched home to Cairo, where they were hailed as conquering heroes. Roses were strewn in their path. Actually, they had taken a terrible beating. Mostly it was a war of skirmishes. But in the final battle for the Negeb desert, the Egyptian troops were driven hack on their own soil with some 2500 casualties, and Israeli troops invaded Egypt.
